My Philosophy

I'm a neuroscientist, passionate about everything from cells to phones, genes to jewellery, hip-hop to hippocampi...

I research artificial intelligence mental healthcare, ethics, digital/clinical/music-based interventions, social media data, molecular biology, neuroimaging, epidemiology, psychiatry, psychology, psychoacoustics and watermarking, statistical methodologies, and other areas to improve our understanding of mental health. I have experience in senior research management roles and I love engaging with youth culture, the arts and society.
